Jake Guentzel is turning into quite the post-season performer in front of our very own eyes.
In Game 6 between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers, Guentzel recorded a natural hat-trick and scored four goals as the Pens closed out their first round series.
Guentzel has recorded just the third four-goal game in Penguins playoff history. The others? Mario Lemieux on 04.25.89 (five goals) and Kevin Stevens on 05.21.91.
